New Rear Tyre Option S1/S2

Recommended Posts

Slight overkill on the speed rating but good looking tyre. A little pricey, but cheaper than the XWX. The advert I saw in Classic & Sports Car suggests they do a V rating too but aybe that is yet to come.

If only they could come up with fronts as well...

I thought so Jean. there is a picture of a JPS car ( world champion car , that is) with yellow coloured DUNLOP letters in the William Taylor Lotus book.

Now, I do have that guilty pleasure in having those raised white letter tires on my old sportscars.

I just did the tires of my 1980 Opel GT and I am now considering the ESPRIT. I have seen on the forum that some giugiaro Turbo Esprit owners did a group buy of GOOD YEAR stickers some time ago. These are the rubber letters of course, not the stickers

The first question is : Will I do this.....😎

The second question will be, do I choose the GOOD YEAR version, or will I go with DUNLOP on my S2.2?

The third question will be , do I choose yellow ( typical dunlop ) or white ( may look better on my car)?

Some years ago I did it in white (matched color with the car). It is cool but it get very fast dirty. So by the years that craziness is far away.

The "real " raised white letters I had in the past on my 1970 Opel GT were easy to clean and keep white with green soap or with hand cleaning paste (soap with sand)

I guess the rubber letters will be the same.
